Today I’m going to show you how to crochet the Herringbone Half Double Crochet Stitch. It’s a great variation to the regular half double crochet. 

The stitch offers some unique texture, and showcase a lovely Herringbone patterning as the rows slants sideways. 

The Herringbone hdc is great for crochet garments, such as this Crochet Cardigan with Pockets, but can also be used for crochet projects such as baby blankets, scarves, afghans, dishcloth and so much more.
